Hey guys, wanted to share this. Never “too young” or “too old” to love this art form passion.

Getting her 1st one cranked out with her PaPa. My 12 year old grand daughter Peyton. Straight “A” 7th grade student at Bolles. She did all the shaping except Skil 100 work. Turned out sweet. She will be glassing next week.

Shape Off At The Boardroom Surf Shop

Jun 5, 2013

Posted by Dale Christenson

We mentioned it on our Facebook page. Now we’ll mention it here. “USBlanks”:http://www.usblanks.com and The Surf Source are happy to sponsor The Boardroom Surf Shop’s first Shape-off.

This Saturday, June 8th, at The Boardroom Surf Shop on Penman Road, four local shapers…

* Marcelo Gagliardi of “MCG Surfboards”:https://www.facebook.com/mcgsurf?directed_target_id=0

* Trevor Scheckinger of Orange Tree Surfboards

* Mike Pedigo of “Flyline Surfboards”:http://flylinesurfboards.com/

* Ryan Simmons of “Rhino Surfboards”:http://www.rhinosurfboards.com/

...will go toe to toe shaping their own version of a Mini-Simmons. These four boards will each be carved out of a 6’ 8” RP blank donated by USBlanks.

Under the officiating of local great “Mitch Kaufmann”:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khwAQiSgOfg, two judges—“Jim Dunlop”:http://mysticsurfboards.net/, known locally as one of the most dynamic and derivative Mini-Simmons shapers on the East Coast and “Mike Whisnant”:http://www.whisnantsurfboards.com/, The 2011 Florida Shape Off Champion @ Surf Expo—will render their verdict on whose version is the best.

Friday evening the shapers will draw straws to choose the order on who shapes when. The first shaper will begin at 9 AM.

Prizes, giveaways, and raffles will take place all day—USBlanks donated a bunch of swag. There will also be a raffle for the winning shape. Surf Source employees—especially your humble writer—will be eligible to purchase a few of those raffle tickets for the winning shape.

Come on out and support your local shapers.

Con permiso, Judges. The hall is rented, the orchestra engaged. It’s now time to see if these guys can dance.
